Pick the Date & TimeIf the party isn't a surprise, then it's best to discuss dates and times with the couple. If you choose to host this celebration on the date of their anniversary make sure it isn't going to hinder any plans they may have already had planned. Be sure to select a date that would work best for invited guests as well. For example, if the honoree's actual anniversary falls on a weekday, it may be better to hold the event on a weekend day instead so guests are able to attend.
Choose the LocationThe location should be convenient for the couple, first and foremost. The venue you choose should be able to hold the allotted amount of guest you plan to invite. Not only that, but if the guests are going to be traveling to attend, you want to be sure that there are plenty of nearby lodging and attractions for the guests while they're visiting. If your guest list is around 100 guests or less, the Country Jewell Wedding and Event Venue is perfect for your party.
Select a ThemeFor an anniversary party, there are several ways you can choose to go for the theme. You can recreate their wedding day, put a fun tropical spin on it, implement a country-rustic vibe, decade themed, or whatever your heart desires! Ask the guests of honor what they would enjoy. If they're celebrating a milestone anniversary such as platinum, diamond, ruby or gold, you've got it easy - just stick to the milestone theme!
Send out InvitationsHopefully you've been compiling a list of guests you plan to invite. You're going to need to get those sent out ASAP! Don't forget to include RSVP information so you have a more realistic idea of how many guests to plan for. The etiquette of gift-giving for an anniversary is not always clear, so be sure to specify on the invitations "No Gifts, Please" to avoid any confusion if that's the wishes of the couple. Also make sure to include travel and lodging information so that guests who plan to attend can easily make accommodations.
Plan Decor and EntertainmentThink about the couple when making plans for the big event. Some couples are entertainers at heart and love to make the most of their get-togethers. They would love to have a well-thought out and detailed event with plenty of interaction and guest involvement. Others may prefer to keep it low-key, so if that's the case, stick to the basics and don't spend much time on coming up with entertainment. For personal touches, make sure you include special things from their wedding day: a replication of their wedding cake, a photo book of their wedding day, use their wedding colors in the theme and decor. As an anniversary gift to the happy couple, create an anniversary guest book for them to keep and look back on for years to come.
